In this mini‐review, we summarize the recent development of liquid‐infused slippery surfaces (LISS) for biomedical applications. The selected topics are divided into two parts, the material designs and emerging strategies to fabricate slippery surface, and their applications with strong and direct relevance to biomedical areas, including antibiofouling, antithrombosis, medical device coatings and surface enhanced/assisted detection. We also describe the most critical directions in need of development to adapt this new approach to biomedical use.
